Oh hey, so with the release of 6th and the very soon release of Dark Vengeance I thought I'd do a Dark Angels log.
Now I've done 40k logs before but some have fallen out of use, my Empire log is what i tend to focus on, however DA are one of my favourite chapters, great lore great look and with a new release soon some great new models.
So I already have a full Ultramarines company which is nearly finished and currently my main army, I also have a company of space wolves which are currently set aside as i am not a huge fan of them in the new rules (at least not until i can afford a lot of drop pods), so as you can tell i like marines and i tend to do them in bulk :P
My current plan of painting/buying:
I already own 5 sprues of the veterans upgrade sprue which of course is great cause it has 5 full marines on each, my plan is to make one into a command squad though that may wait till a codex incase theres something with a shiney banner.
the others I'm going to mix some of the robed marines with the new plastics which will give me about 40 marines, or 4 tacticals, i have 5 terminators already and will have another 10 with the 2 sets of terminators with the dark vengeance box. I've also picked up a bunch of bikes and Ravenwing conversion parts of ebay and again will have 2 sets of DV bikes so should have a decent sized ravenwing & Deathwing detachment.
So thats what i have to start with, I've already experimented with some bits and some painting. so enough of the blabber heres what we're all here for some shiney pics
First off my first deathwing sergeant, he's pretty much finished not sure about the shield on his shoulder though i think i may make it a bit more colourful, more of an experimental model would love some feedback.
I'm undecided on how to base the army, just did a moonscape on the sergeant but dunno if i want to change it to something else, any ideas?
I picked up a bunch of this stuff ages ago, i picked up Azrael and his little friend ages ago on ebay azrael they're both close to finished, i'm kind of hoping there will be a new azrael model cause although this one is awesome he's so tiny
And finally just a bunch of made up DA marines, hopefully by next week i'll have most the army built, so you'll get an idea of what the army will be looking like
So yeah any feedback would be appreciated always looking for some constructive criticism, i realise there will be alot of new DA logs so will likely have a lot of competition, but yeah i hope you like my stuff. Oh i've also ordered master of the ravenwing cause he's awesome will likely be one of the first things i paint in the new army, oh and if you're wondering the army will likely be the 3rd or 4th company (i prefer the 3rd's markings but they may prove frustrating to replicate)
